With the end of the summer season people are warned to keep an eye out for baby snakes that have recently hatched.

Local snake catcher Paul Newcombe said the region will see plenty of baby brown snakes as they hatched in January and February.

To prevent snakes coming inside, Mr Newcombe suggests leaving a small bit of water out at the back of the property, so a thirsty snake can have a drink and keep on going.

If you do find one in the house, Mr Newcombe advises throwing a tea towel or towel over them will calm them down and contain them for a little while.

You can then call the snake catcher on 0424522608, and keep an eye on where the snake goes.

Sightings of snakes will gradually decrease around April as they find a place to wait out the cooler months.

So far in the current snake season, Mr Newcombe has caught and relocated 113 snakes.
